Important Update:

UCO requires all students, employees and visitors to wear a mask on campus when around others, both indoors and outdoors, and practice physical distancing of at least six feet when possible. If you or someone you know has COVID-19 symptoms, has been directly exposed to COVID-19 or has tested positive, fill out UCO's COVID-19 Self-Reporting form.

Broncho Education and Learning Lab (BELL)

The Broncho Education and Learning Lab (BELL) exists to help undergraduate and graduate students learn through peer tutoring, supplemental instruction, study skills development, time-management tools, and other forms of academic support. The BELL, formerly Tutoring Central, offers three locations throughout the campus to assist students. The first is located in the northeast corner of West Hall, and the second is located in room W112 of the Quad Residence Hall. The third BELL location is offered to student-athletes and is located on the third floor of the Sports Performance Center.

Location Information — Modified for the COVID-19 Pandemic

Please Note: Given UCO’s institutional response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all BELL locations are closed for on-campus academic support. Instead, the BELL is offering virtual peer-tutoring and supplemental instruction sessions. The process for scheduling remains the same, and you will receive an email with instructions for accessing the virtual appointment. Schedule your virtual appointment.
